The Ottawa Hospital's trauma centre said it had received two patients "in critical condition" from the collision.

The crash took place at 3:50 p.m., during Friday rush hour, at Westboro station in an urban neighbourhood west of downtown.

Afternoon traffic snarled around the station as dozens of emergency personnel descended on the scene. Police were urging people to avoid the area.

Buses were being detoured as a result of the accident, OC Transpo said.

Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson tweeted he was shocked to hear of the "horrific incident."

"My first thoughts are with those who have been injured and their families. I have asked staff to ensure all necessary resources are made available to assist them through this difficult time," he said. "Westboro station is still an active emergency site, and I would ask residents to stay out of the way in order to assist first responders with their work."

In 2013, an Ottawa bus collided with a Via Rail train in suburban Barrhaven, killing six people.

It didn't take long for staff at the Ottawa Hospital to learn something terrible had happened at Westboro station late Friday afternoon, and to prepare for the incoming wounded. "When they were able to confirm that we had at least five critical patients that would be coming, and possibly over 12, that's when we made the decision to call the code orange," said Dr. Guy Hébert, the head of the Ottawa Hospital's emergency medicine department, who was on duty that day. In the end, the hospital treated 18 patients — 12 at the Civic campus and six at the General campus.
